Which Union Member Are You?

Some members keep their union strong, while other join and just belong.

Some dig right in – some serve with pride,

Some go along just for the ride.

Some volunteer to do their share, while some lie back and just don’t care.

On meeting day some always show, while there are those who never go.

Some do their best, some build, some make, some never give, but always take.

Some lag behind, some let things go, some never help their Union grow.

Some drag, some pull, some don’t, some do, consider –

Which of these are you?
